We Want Your Pitches

We've been working on an idea of an episode all about how books get made - from the first kernel of an idea, to selling the idea to an agent or publisher, to self-publishing to who writes those blurbs on the back of the final copy.

We need your help and your book pitches.  I'm borrowing the format from the New Hampshire Writers’ Project you send us a short pitch for the book you're working on or dying to write - novel, non-fiction, memoir, fantasy, whatever - and we'll submit it anonymously with an agent from the Zachary Shuster Harmsworth publishing house.

Remember, a good book pitch is succinct, attention grabbing and makes you want to keep reading. With that in mind, we want your pitches. Email your idea in 150 words or less to:  Put “book pitch” in the subject line and please limit submissions to one per person. 

You make NHPR possible.

NHPR is nonprofit and independent. We rely on readers like you to support the local, national, and international coverage on this website. Your support makes this news available to everyone.
